Quantum Mechanics beyond Galileo

Marko Toroš, ICTP, Università degli studi di Trieste, Italy

We will discuss some problems related to combing relativity and quantum mechanics. We will first introduce Foldy’s framework for quantum mechanics in Minkowski space-time. We will present some new results within the theory of relativistic open quantum systems. In particular, we will discuss dynamical maps, Lorentz covariance and non-inertial reference frames. In addition, we will also look at the implications for fundamental non-unitary modifications of quantum mechanics.
